Event description

Description

Ever wondered what scientists get up to behind closed doors? Are you curious about how medical researchers discover new treatments for diseases? The Department of Immunology and Pathology is providing an opportunity for members of the public to experience a stimulating and interactive tour of our labs. You will learn with hands-on experience about the research being conducted in our labs and have a chat with us afterwards over a glass of wine. The tour will include a brief talk from one of our senior researchers, followed by demonstrations of exciting scientific techniques involving microscopes, microbes and teeny tiny cells excited by laser beams!

Tours are free and run for approximately 90 minutes. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.

As tour groups visit a working laboratory, closed toe shoes must be worn for occupational health and safety reasons. Safety glasses will be provided.

The minimum age for discovery tour attendees is 18 years old.

By registering through Eventbrite, you agree to these conditions and to maintain safe conduct as directed by the tour guides.

Photography: participants are welcome to take photographs during the tour, but please frame working scientists outside of the photos unless permission is given.
